World Sub-Junior and Junior Powerlifting Championships '16
Poland is the host country for the upcoming 2016 IPF Junior World Powerlifting Championships. I received with a great pleasure the IPF decision
to bestow the organization of these Championships upon us. Taking this opportunity
I would like to thank the IPF President Mr. Gaston Parage and the IPF Executive Committee members for having confidence in our organizational possibilities and us as well.
This event will take place in the well-known winter sports center and spa Szczyrk, located in the mountain area near the Polish south border. The venue “Orle Gniazdo” Hotel hosted 2012 IPF World Juniors and Masters Powerlifting Championships, so many of you will visit it once again.
Poland already hosted several IPF continental and world championships in different cities and these events have always been highly appreciated by the IPF Executives and the participants. Powerlifting has always been a very popular sport in Poland, practiced by wide circles of enthusiasts and Polish competitive powerlifters are financially supported by the Sports Ministry what, for sure, plays an important role in their achievements and successes at the IPF international championships. The 2016 IPF World Juniors and Masters Powerlifting Championships will be organized under the patronage of the Polish Sport Minister Mr. Witold Bańka what is the best evidence of powerlifting high position among Polish sports.
Preparation of this contest has been progressing smoothly and I am sure everything will be ready on time and according to the IPF highest standards. Taking this opportunity, I would like to invite all IPF affiliated National Powerlifting Federations to enter these Championships and to send their biggest and strongest teams to Szczyrk. You will be welcome with traditional Polish hospitality and friendship. A nice Central Europe late summer with pleasing air temperatures and usual sunny weather will cause you feel comfortable and you will have a good opportunity to visit interesting places in the area.
All participants will be accommodated in one hotel, in which the Championships will also be run. I hope you will be satisfied and I would like to wish all lifters their personal best results and medals.
See you in Szczyrk,
Polish Federation President
